‘Two Hundred Words and One Picture’ exhibition to open at Strule Arts Centre’

7th January 2020

An open invitation is extended to attend the opening of a powerful new exhibition, hosted by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, in Strule Arts Centre, Omagh on Friday 10 January at 7pm.

‘Two Hundred Words and One Picture’ which explores the profound impact of the troubles on the lives of people across the community has been created by Towards Understanding and Healing and features contributions from more than thirty people whose individual stories are accompanied by an image which “serves to mirror their words”.

Speaking about the exhibition, Eamonn Baker from Towards Understanding and Healing said,

“The exhibition is a kaleidoscope of heartache and resilience. This process has been deeply moving and I have been privileged to hear sometimes heart breaking stories from people from widely diverse community backgrounds. We are very grateful to all our contributors, young and old, who have bravely shared their stories.”

Some of the contributors will be present at the opening and there will be an opportunity to meet them and listen to their stories. There will be a further opportunity to hear their stories at the Strule Arts Centre at 11 am on Tuesday 14 January 2020.

The exhibition runs until Saturday 25 January 2020 and admission is free. The Gallery at Strule Arts Centre is open from (9.30am – 5 pm, Monday – Saturday).
